Excellent article on this perfect pop record in current Uncut.Peter claims it is about sex rather than drugs and also says he prefers the Peel session version.John Perry's guitar is the icing on a very lovely cake.

Picked cos they've just announced they're reuniting in May at the Austin Psych Festival. They're first gig in 45 years. I'd love to be there, especially when they play this one.

The next Half Man Half biscuit album was "Macintyre Treadmore and Davitt". The title and cover of the album were taken from the Ripping Yarns episode "Golden Gordon". The song features references to the masked wrestler Kendo Nagasaki who was a regular on ITVs World of Sport.

Saw Finding Fela at the Brooks this week. So my Fela Kuti kick continues! Learned a little about this song. I knew it was about the traffic in Lagos, but I wasn't aware of the political/military implications.

The next in my albums that have stayed with me since first listen is "Singles...Going Steady" by Buzzcocks. I know it's a compilation, but 8 classic singles together with 8 excellent B sides makes for a mighty fine album.

by The Smiths
The next album that has stayed with me since fist listen is "The Queen is Dead" by the Smiths. I was lucky enough to see the Smiths 4 times and the concert around the time of the Queen is Dead at the Brixton Academy was amazing.

Another seminal New York band.Not their greatest track but the first one I heard,courtesy of John Peel.Doubtless,should have been in bed as it was school the next day but the show was just too good to miss.

Damn, I really wanted to jam The Monkees' "I Don't Think You Know Me," especially the version with Micky Dolenz's vocal. (Nesmith and Tork also recorded leads for it.) It exists on YouTube but refuses to be played here, and although I tried Mike's as well, all the videos that are jammable are pretty lame for one reason or another. My pal Kepi's old band did a cover of a different Monkees song (written by Neil Diamond) that I like quite a bit, so I decided to go with that instead. It's short and pretty sweet, so what the hell.

This song is so ethereal and right up my alley. I particularly love when the heavy strings kick in @ 3:43. As an aside: the footage is from "The Fall", a visually stunning movie.
